Vicksburg awarded ‘Best Water Treatment Plant in Mississippi’ once again

For the second consecutive year, the city of Vicksburg has received the 2020 Water Treatment Plant of the Year Award from the American Water Works Association. Overall water quality, plant improvements, energy efficiency and regulatory conformance were cited as criteria for the selection.

“Having the best water treatment plant in the State of Mississippi for two years in a row is just one more reason why people should move to Vicksburg,” said Mayor George Flaggs Jr. “Our philosophy is to provide the best quality service at the least cost to the taxpayers. Today, we’re continuing to deliver on that promise.”

The city hired ESG Operations, Inc. in 2016 to manage and operate the city’s water treatment plant on Haining Road.

The plant has received a five-star rating from the Mississippi Department of Health for the past four years and has been in 100 percent compliance with all regulatory agencies.
